New bike unveiling tonight

No, not for me -- for my boy. He turned 5 today, and has outgrown his toy bike. So dad found a non-toy boys bike off craigslist for his b-day present -- $25! Can't beat that with a frame pump.

The training wheels I had to buy cost me as much as the bike -- a Trek. So the unveiling will be tonight. I don't think he's going to like wobbling around with his training wheels initially, so we'll see how it goes.

Can't wait for that blissful moment for him (and me) when I release the bike and he flies down the sidewalk without the training wheels. Maybe it'll happen this year.

Cool - did you go with the deep dish aero carbon training wheels?
